Response: Botran is of no real use on peaches in North Carolina. Especially as it would relate to use during the time of fruit thinning. Thus the proposed changes would have no negative if any impact at all. Dave Ritchie

Response: Regarding the proposed rate and REI reductions for Botran, I noticed that onions is not listed in the Word document. Are onions not being considered for these reductions? If not, our plant pathologists feel that the proposed reductions for celery and lettuce will not cause significant hardship for Texas producers. Mark A.
